Martin Custom Shop 12-Fret Dreadnought Carpathian Spruce / Quilted Mahogany with Ambertone Sunburst


A true, one-off Martin Custom Shop guitar personally designed by Martin Custom Shop's Emily Meixell. Stunning looks and a huge, open tone!

Combining an Ambertone sunburst Carpathian spruce top with incredible quilted mahogany back and sides and a black ebony fingerboard and bridge, this 12-fret dreadnought is the ultimate all-rounder; it suits strumming, flatpicking and Fingerpicking equally. The Carpathian spruce top has incredible headroom, sparkle and clarity, and the mahogany lends a subtle sweetness to the low end. Appointments include Guatemalan rosewood binding, 21-style pearl inlays, old-style silver Martin headstock logo and classic Waverley tuners. A phenomenal dreadnought that has to be heard to be believed.

This Custom Shop guitar comes complete with vintage-style Martin case.
